Thanks for sharing this with us here at TC, Bronwyn. Your reflection on plans got me thinking about a further way to put New Year resolutions in perspective. Minor personal goals are one thing, but if we see larger resolutions as part of God's ongoing plan rather than our own plan, that might change how we approach the new year. God's resolution is the same it's been for generations: to restore His creation and our relationship with Him. How might our resolutions work, in some small way, toward that?
It's always an honor to share space at TC, Josh. Thinking of our own personal resolutions within the context of God's great stated Resolutions definitely reframes my thinking. My resolution to read more classic works of literature stems from reading Karen Swallow Prior's "Booked": I want to let literature speak more wisdom into my spiritual formation this year.
